Quote from the clueless

The following is from a recent article looking at teens who play poker. While I love the game tremendously, I absolutely agree that the proliferation of the game is having a negative impact on many teenagers, probably leading them to a life of gambling that could cause them financial and emotional harm. You can now find poker games in the toy section of places like Wal-Mart. That's just scary.

Do take a close look at the last part of this guy's quote. Maybe we should ask folks like Phil Hellmuth, Howard Lederer, or even your local or online pro if they agree.

"It's fun. It's exciting. It's glamorized on TV and in the media in a way that other addictions are not," said Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling. "There's the impression that through skill, you can beat the odds. But randomness is always going to have a bigger factor in determining the outcome than your skill. And unfortunately, that's not the message these kids get."
